weaponry is of great concern to both israel and the u.s. they have not been on the same page about when they think iran might acquire that capability. these are not netanyahu and israel and obama here not the best of friends. so anything they can do to kind of ease what has been kind of four years of tension between the two would be good so they get on the same page. egypt, you know, the arab spring and the transition from dictatorship, which might have been a dictatorship, but nonetheless certainly helped in terms of the middle east balance of power because it did have a peace treaty with israel. that hasn't gone so well. we're talking about the war in syria spilling over into israel. there's no shortage of things to talk about. and i think i would also just add that presidents in second terms use a broader palette when they go after issues. they are looking at the history books. every president has tried to do something about middle east peace in particular between israel and the palestinians. i think that clock also ticks for the president. >> and how important is it for the u.s. and

and actually read the presidential debate with john mccain over and over again, obama promised to make a campaign speech does the same thing. i have some new proposals, but i'm going to more than offset them by other cuts and he promised a smaller government that we have great then. now when we got to the week or two after the election we start talking about the stimulus. it will be for one, maybe two years. we had a 21% increase during the first years of the obama administration over and above the solution. that dollar increase in spending adjusted for inflation is argentinian priest standing we had during world war ii, which is pretty phenomenal when you think about how much the country no place to go and fight world war ii there. this is larger for inflation. rather than the stimulus lasting for almost a couple years, not only can't we cut spending, but we can even slow the growth of spending or have a detrimental effect on the economy. obviously a shot newsome grassed a minute ago that indicated around economic growth is it going too well. the president often has made recommendatio

republicans aren't about defense at all cost. president obama holding private dipper at the white house to remind israeli he still cares. both easing suspension. that's why you have to get them in the same room before you get them on the same page. little things lead to big things. sometimes just seeing a new president like gerald ford making his own breakfast is all you need at the white house. to show scandal weary americans there is change at the white house. such images don't always last but never let it be said in the moment they don't count. that is not to say that waving to the crowd mys more crowd but it says there is a new noppope intown. they they you never get a second chance to make a first impression. but i'm impressed with those following up to take chances to make a lasting impression. >> kimberly: >> hello. i'm eric bolling with kimberly guilfoyle, bob beckel, dana perino and greg gutfeld. it's happy hour in panama city, florida. this is "the five"! ♪ ♪ >> eric: a special week out of "the five." if you're sick of the blathe blathering on capitol hill and white house,

. >> she came out today and formally endorsed same-sex marriage. james carville just reminded the country she worked hard for president obama. it sounds to me like there may be some preparation for you a run. if she van, does that clear the field? no one would dare challenge her? >> no one would ever say that in politics. i think she would be as formidable a front-runner, and i've never seen a -- this is early, but at this everliy stage in the process, and i think david plouffe said the same thing yesterday about what a formidable front-runner she would be, you know, but not very often do we get a candidate that the party can unite behind and enhance the real qualifications that mrs. clinton does. look action i'm unabashedly hoping she runs president she's a strong woman. she's going to make up her own mind. i guarantee you that. >>> who does the republicans have that you can't see that could give her a race if she in fact runs and becomes a nominee? who would be the one that you would be concerned about if you were helping with her campaign if there were to be one? >> i don't think -- i
of different paths to the senate majority, they didn't get there. 2014, same sort of thing. the 2008 class elected on a 365 electoral vote by barack obama. this will be barack obama's second mid-term election, he's not on the ballot, different dynamic and all of those people are in states that are at best, sort of toss-ups between the two parties. louisiana, charlie can speak better than i can about that, being his home state. but louisiana, south dakota, montana, west virginia. those aren't really toss-ups in federal reser federal races any more. that's four off the top. put arkansas in there, that's five. >> it will be fascinating, especially to see what candidates end up being nominated. that's the big word at the nrsc, they don't want to have to deal with the todd akins they had to before. charlie cook, chris cillizza, thanks so much for joining us. >>> up next, is the sequester here to stay? we'll talk budget politics with congressman chris van holland. >>> and on the ten-year anniversary on the war in iraq, bombs are still exploding in baghdad. join andrea tomorrow and thursday live
of america, in egypt for supporting terrorists and the same in the west bank, leslie referred to, they're defacing pictures of president obama, throwing shoes at it and believe that the supposed to be quote, unquote insinuated in cairo have been turned back again. and when you talk about a two-state solution, you have to have a willing peace partner on the other side and not just that there's not really a two-state. you're talking potentially three-state solution because hamas and gaza strip are totally different than fatah and the west bank. >> sean: and leslie, let me ask you a question, why should the israelis, why should they trust barack obama, who snubbed just beyond the pale snubbed bb netanyahu in the white house, that claimed they should go back to '67 border, we promised israel we would never ask them to do that. obama did it and then on top of that, sarkozy says that bb is a liar and oh, i've got to deal with him every week. why would bb netanyahu ever trust this man, the israelis, because i wouldn't if i were them. >> it's not about trust, it's about business. a, if you wan
obama and speaker of the house, john boehner, both in denial or are they drinking the same stuff? >> i think it's important to recognize is that we've already cut 2.5, 2.7 trillion dollars out of the deficit. if the sequester stays in you've got over 3 1/2 trillion dollars of deficit reduction already so we don't have an immediate crisis in terms of debt. in fact for the next ten years it's in sustainable place. >> we do not have an immediate debt crisis, but we all know we have one looming. >> greta: turns out a majority of americans disagree with the president and the speaker of the house. a new poll showing, a fox poll, that 68% of americans describe the national debt as an immediate problem. only 27% say the debt can be handled in the future. mayor, what do you think? the speaker and the president don't think it's an immediate problem? >> i think the american people are far better economists than the people in washington. the reality we do have a serious debt problem. it's been accumulating now for four or five years. under obama it's been accumulating at massive amounts and there'
obama is still very real. >> the president traveled to the west bank today. any word on what came out of his meeting with president abbas? >> reporter: well, pretty much the same thing as with the israelis. don't forget this is being portrayed as an attempt to mend faces with the israelis. it is the same thing with the palestinians. he lost the israelis four years ago in a speech in cairo. he gained the support of the palestinians in that speech because he called for a palestinian state. but so little has happened. so little has changed on the ground that he lost the support of the palestinian people. their reaction to president obama today ranged from indifference to outright hostility. he was well received in the palestinian headquarters in ramallah but outside the headquarters, you only had to go a few hundred yards and you would have found over the past few days in ramallah, almost daily demonstrations by palestinians against the president, calling him the president of the israelis. they said you're no -- the refrain among the palestinian protesters was you're no friend of the pal
